"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

"Ridgies" and Cats - Animal Wednesday

I have been wanting to do an "AW" post on one of my favourite dog breeds - Rhodesian Ridgebacks.  They are exceptionally beautiful and intelligent. 
My dear friend, Marja, (beloved friend to Marianne) has an extraordinary one - Beaudor! The dog above is NOT Beaudor....but I chose this video because it shows how smart these fellows are.   Mar, Monsieur B - this one's for you! 
As for the next clip - well, I know many of you "Cat- Owners Slaves" have equally wonderful footage - but these are adorable.

  1. I have to admit to kitty bias but both are great.thanks Robin. meow.

  2. Of course RR's are smart!! Not nice of the lady to trick him, but at least she didn't scold him. (I never trick Emma, oh no!)

    The cat videos made me ooh and aah. Hard to pick a favorite! I do love the chattering pals though. And the persian who slapped his paws over his eyes. Adorable!!

    Thanks for sharing LS ;)


  3. Felix oohed and awwed on that cat video!

    And yes those Ridgies tell me about them.... I happen to know the smartest one here in Holland!

    Cute post Robin just what I needed : a smile!

    here we had a grey day but at least it was dry!
    I followed Marja's advice and took the dogs for a walk. It wasn't too bad.
    So glad Spring is nearly there where you live!
